If you love this album, this is the pressing you should get. Not just this one, but any of the Mercury label versions with the 'MASTERDISK' stamp (3 options)

I had quite a journey with this record. First I got a 2010's reissue which sounded awful, then a 1975 UK first press Vertigo, which also sounded bad. Muddy and flat, and I didn't understand what was going on. Then I dig up some info about this, and came to the conclusion that I have to try with this 'MASTERDISK' pressing. Finally I can settle with this one - waited for some time to come across a reasonable offer around my area.
But you should know that this one isn't perfect either. It also feels a little flat, but still waaaay better that the first press UK Vertigo. Also I like this cover art better.

So all in all, if you are looking for the best first issue of this album, I can recommend the US Mercury pressings with the 'MASTERDISK' stamp. There are 3 different versions, I add this review to all of them.

Interesting how this cover and the Ramones’ first both had very similar look and came out in 75! Coincidence or influence?

The initial press of this came with a faulty bonus disc on which the US mix of "Rosalie" was actually just the regular album version repeated. For a time it was possible to contact Universal and receive a corrected bonus disc in the mail. I don't actually know if a second run with the fixed disc was ever produced.

Great repress. Listened all the way through. No surface noise or pops that have become common with new pressings. Highly recommend this edition.

I have variant 6 in VG+ condition. It sounds kind of flat and dull to me. Like it was going through a few generations. Wouldn't be surprised if it's from tape. I have other Vertigo first presses from Lizzy (Vagabond, Nightlife, Jailbreak, Johnny) they sound really great - like they should be. This is pretty bad sounding compared to those. The digital versions of this sound slightly better to my ears, they are more sharp/edgy. I'll try with a 'Masterdisk G.K.' Mercury pressing sometime when I have the chance.

Bought this one, because no older pressing was available around me. It sounds flat, makes me sad. I have to eq this with more bass to sound decent. The highs are too high, the mids are dull and the lows are very quiet. I expected a much better sound. I have Nightlife, Jailbreak and Johnny the Fox - all of them are 70s pressings, and those sound like a dream, they are beautiful. Compared to those, this is a shame.
Also if you take a closer look on the back cover, you can find some mistakes. The card symbols for the band members are misplaced by their names, and placed wrong next to the songs. Compare it with the first releases.

i have no other versions to compare it to but it sounds unusually bright as a drummer would mix it making the cymbals and treble stand out and the bass is just in the background as an after thought.

Nice overall sound. I tried original UK pressing from 1975 but it was dull and anemic sounding comparing to this pressing.
